Power

When I was in high school, I didn't realize that the quickest way to get the most social capital was to get a boyfriend or girlfriend. Once you had one, you gained power. You gained, to some extent, either popularity or notoriety, depending on whether your significant other was good or not. Either way, you had power. And people wanted to take that power. A lot of girls wanted my boyfriend. Why? I don't know, because in hindsight, I don't even know why I wanted him. Maybe to subconsciously wield power over the girls? Creepy, but it'd make good fiction.
